    Looking for 1 skein of Caron Cakes in macaroon to complete my project. It is no longer listed on the Yarspirations (caron) site. Might anyone have one they will part with?

    Adding new skein

    Learning to knit by youtube. I have tried a couple different methods of adding a new skein of yarn. How is the best way to do this? Thanks for your help.

    Knitting with circular needles

    i am learning to knit although I have been crocheting for many many years. I first struggled with straight needles someone had given to me, but being used to the shortness of a crochet hook decided to try the circular needles. I find them much easier to handle and have been much more successful with the circulars. I suggest buying (or borrowing) an inexpensive circular needle and see how it goes. I think you may find it much more comfortable to use.

    A fun way to sample new yarns

    I have enjoyed getting these little bags of yarn. Some very interesting yarns, and I love the little bags themselves!

    Stylecraft Special DK

    I love Stylecraft Special DK yarn. I use it often and it would be perfect for a baby afghan!

    I think I've been doing this wrong

    I think your crochet is lovely. I see no need for you to change. How rude of people to comment otherwise!

    Hook Brand

    I usually use tulip Etimo but recently bought a Clover Amour and am in love with it. I can crochet faster and my arthritic hands don't hurt at all! As most have said, it's all about individual comfort and style. I learned on Boye hooks many ears ago and never had a problem with them, but now enjoy the more ergonomic hooks.

    Our House Part Two

    Flyby for me this morning. Just read "While the City Slept" a nonfiction true story about 2 women who where attacked in their home by a mentally ill man. It was really good, more about the people involved than the actual crime. Hope everyone is having a great day,

    Our House Part Two

    Hi House. I have been absent for a while, but check in to read and keep up every day. Seems as if everyone has been busy! Hope all who have been under the weather are feeling better. I was in Florida visiting my mother for about 2 weeks. It was a very relaxing time but then again I was very tired when I got home. I have been very busy since I returned. I am in a crochet slump again. I think because I'm not enjoying what I'm working on. My sister's poncho (after I ripped it out all those times) has been hard to get back to and my friend has asked me to make 2 beards out of black yarn. She "asked" by bringing me the yarn and pattern and I am a real sucker when she does that. I need to learn to say NO. I am also still behind on my temperature blanket. Darn, I thought I could keep up with one row a day. Today is hubby's birthday so DS is making him a cake. My son loves to cook and bake so I just turn the kitchen over to him when he is here. He even cleans it up. Better scoot for now. Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day and a wonderful weekend!

    Comfort/Prayer Shawl

    I love the shawl pattern Granny Square posted. Is the shawl for the child or the child's mother?

    Comfort/Prayer Shawl

    My favorite go-to prayer shall pattern is http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cozy-comfort-prayer-shawl . It works up quickly and I have had many compliments on the ones I have made.
